I saw Mary today

     I saw Rick today

I haven't seen her since last summer

     I wonder if he still cares about our summer romance

She looks better than ever

     I couldn't take my eyes off of him

I asked her how senior year was going

     I asked him about his new college girlfriend

I'd choose her over anyone

     He's probably having the time of his life now

I can't even look at her without breaking down

     He couldn't even look at me

I told her I miss her

     He tried to be sincere

I meant it with all of my heart

     He doesn't mean it

I'm still in love with her

     He loves college and his new girl

I took her in my arms for the last time

     He gave me a friendly hug

Then I went home and cried

     Then I went home and cried

I lost her

     I love him
